So you spotted that Chris!

I so badly want one of his latest creations! That Shw.... whatever
He never returned my pm's trying to order one. I may have to settle on a Needle100!

What am I doing building a "Fish"?

Grahamnumbers, how much of that carbon do you use on one wing? The whole m2 or more?

Yeah, but soon it may have a gold misting...
Speaking of witch,

Graham numbers has started practising his "gold" finish on his latest wings!

Fubar
I don't know how that 'Hammondesque' tail is gonna hold out with Bakkie's inverted tail dragging up the Maitland's road!

That tail is awesome.
